[email protected] ([email protected]) provides a broad suite of quality community programs of social value and practical benefit.

Established and developed in Canberra, we are a local organisation that understands local needs.  Our innovative and progressive culture seeks to respond to changing community needs in a thoughtful and constructive manner.

Delivering over 100 programs from 40 locations, we provide families with a range of reliable child care options and offer specialised programs to help people in need.  Each year, we deliver services to more than 20,000 people from birth to senior years.

Our vision is for a resilient and socially inclusive community that cares for the well-being of all.  We contribute positively to the health and vitality of our community by:

  1. providing a safe, stimulating environment for the nurture and education of young people
  2. helping vulnerable and at-risk youth overcome challenges and realise their full potential
  3. providing support to families and individuals experiencing difficulties or hardship
  4. assisting the frail aged and people with disabilities to lead independent and fruitful lives
  5. enhancing the social inclusion of people disconnected from the community
  6. managing community facilities and providing a range of recreational and social activities
  7. offering nationally accredited training and professional learning for children’s services staff
  8. providing a diverse range of rewarding employment and volunteering opportunities.
